Book plate

I was thinking very literally when this bookplate site came up on Monkeyfilter: has someone made a plate (or other item for the table) out of an actual book? There was a recent article in Make about how to hollow a book, and perhaps the technique could be adapted. I am thinking that one would scoop out the innards of a thin book, leaving a rim, and pot the whole thing in clear resin. Conceptual art!

A book plate...on which one would serve red herring.

I know we could come-up with a whole literary dinner party, if we try. A Moveable Feast?

And there would be book bowls and book platters and book cheese boards too.
